Paducah Bank awarded BauerFinancial 5-star rating

Paducah, KY - January 2023: BauerFinancial, Inc., the Nation’s Premier Bank Rating Firm, has once again awarded Paducah Bank, Paducah, Kentucky its top (5-Star) rating. “It’s important to impress, this award is not granted; it is earned”, emphasizes Karen Dorway, president of BauerFinancial. “And, having earned 5-Stars for 40 (or more) consecutive quarters, Paducah Bank has earned an even higher designation as an ‘Exceptional Performance Bank’”.

Bauer rates every federally-insured U.S. chartered bank with the same strict standards, and we are pleased to report that Paducah Bank continues to excel in areas of capital adequacy, profitability, loan quality and more. This marks the 54th consecutive quarter it has done so - since October 2009! Now that’s worth celebrating. Paducah Bank has certainly proven it has what it takes to carry it through 2023, whatever it may bring.

“With the Federal Reserve raising interest rates at breakneck speed, it may be tough for some banks to keep pace”, cautions Dorway. “But, with high capital cushions and an established track record, Paducah Bank is well-positioned to continue to thrive and be a source of strength for its community.”

Paducah Bank was established in 1948 and has been a rock-solid banking partner for the community ever since. That’s 75 years of relationship-building and community-strengthening. Neighbors and friends should be proud to call Paducah Bank their bank.
